HOMILY: MONDAY THE TWENTY-EIGHTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

HOMILY: MONDAY THE TWENTY-EIGHTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

Galatians 4:22-24, 26-27, 31-5:1; Psalm 113; Luke 11:29-32

“Something greater than Jonah is here!” Jesus is greater than Jonah. The people of Nineveh recognized the authority of Jonah and repented.  Jesus’ generation should be able to do the same, given that Jesus is greater than Jonah. Again, the people in the gospel were asking Jesus for a sign. Jesus did not give them any sign. Beloved, Jesus is the sign of signs. Those who seek for signs have turned themselves to wanderers. Seek Jesus and other things shall be added unto you. Precisely because of this, Paul calls us in the first reading to follow the path of faith. Faithless Christians search for signs; while faithful Christians seek Jesus. God bless you!

 

LET US PRAY

 Lord Jesus, whatever  I will do today, let your loving eye be upon me and as you have promised to guide me. Help me to fix my eyes on you as I run the race of life. Help me to walk by faith and not by sight. Strengthen me through your Holy Spirit. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
